Trevor Noah put himself into a Donald Trump supporter’s shoes on Monday’s broadcast of “The Daily Show,” then dissected a Washington Post report that showed how Trump lied in 1982 to get himself onto the Forbes 400 list. That falsehood “cemented” Trump’s status as a mogul and ultimately enabled his successful bid to become president. “This was a big thing for me, the bullshit foundation that he built his entire bullshit career on,” said Noah. “If I was a Trump supporter, this new revelation would have me shook,” Noah added. “Because it turns out his entire origin story was fake.

He'll probably be capped at about 150 innings. Since those innings are more easily controlled in the minor leagues, he will certainly spend time there. The Dodgers' goal will be to keep him fresh and strong for the championship run in the fall, and even days like Monday will not divert them from their plan.

Towns watched most of the first quarter from the bench after picking up his second foul less than three minutes into the game. Harden did not make a basket until 5 minutes 57 seconds remained in the second quarter, when his 10-foot floater fell in to cut Minnesota’s lead to 39-37. The Thunder established a 26-19 lead late in the first quarter when Carmelo Anthony capped a string of three straight Oklahoma City baskets with an alley-oop layup. They held onto the lead for much of the second quarter, but then Utah finally woke up on offense. Starting with Gobert cutting to the rim for a dunk with 3 minutes 45 seconds left in the second quarter, the Jazz scored on 11 straight offensive possessions.

As a kid, he won home run derbies and led his Little League division in strikeouts. He played quarterback on youth football teams.

Washington (CNN) Donald Trump is not the only President who wants to make his country great again -- his first state dinner guest, Emmanuel Macron , wants to do the same. "I'm here to deal with the President of the United States and people of the United States elected Donald Trump." If he really values Macron, and is interested in repaying his friendship, Trump may be forced to pay a political price himself. "Macron is the President of the French Republic -- he wants to make France great again — he cannot do that if Trump opposes him. Its special relationship partner Britain is all but overwhelmed by its plans to leave the European Union -- a factor that is also diminishing its usefulness to the United States as a key continental power.

A monkey can’t sue over copyright infringement of his selfies because he’s not human and therefore has no standing to do so, a federal appeals court ruled on Monday. (“Monkey see, monkey sue is not good law,” noted that ruling). Both sides eventually reached a settlement, with Slater agreeing to donate 25 percent of future income from the Naruto photos to protect habitats where crested macaques live. PETA’s general counsel, Jeff Kerr, said in a statement that Naruto was discriminated against “simply because he’s a nonhuman animal.”The court only ruled on Naruto’s standing concerning the Copyright Act, Kerr noted. He said that “nonhuman animals” still have a “constitutional right to bring a case to federal court when they’ve been wronged.”
